Looks like you're gonna need windscreen wipers for that cam. When was that? Last week sometime or Saturday?

Thanks - I'm only making about 15-17 kts through the big stuff, probably more like 5kts SOG when I was climbing up the faces!

Great great shots, but (& I dont want to be a killjoy) have you got a Lifejacket on ?

I've been known not to put mine on, but not in anything like that....

I can only see a coat.....

Quite correct, no lifejacket. Extremely rare occurrance for me to put one on, my own personal choice although anyone else that comes onboard gets offered one.

RIBase
Now, whatever about the LJ, video reduces sea conditions by approximately two Beaufort points, so that's one mean motherfcukin' stretch of water. So kudos to Mr. Martini and his Amazing Flying RIB.

I especially liked the finger of water that reared itself toward the portside at one point. Brrrrrrr!

But the really good thing about the camera is, if you get ejected, they'll know where to start the diving...
